Callum finally comes clean (Pictures: BBC)Despite Callum Highway’s (Tony Clay) happiness to be engaged to Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) and planning the wedding in EastEnders, he’s still hiding the fact that he double crossed Phil (Steve McFadden), but that’s all set to change.
Viewers will remember Callum was blackmailed by DI Thompson into spying on Phil. When Callum knew he was in too deep, he enlisted the help of Jack (Scott Maslen) who gave Phil the edited version of the truth, so he didn’t find out what Callum had been doing.
With guilt eating away at him ahead of the wedding, Callum finally decides to tell Ben about being undercover and of course, Ben discovering the news doesn’t go down well.
Callum’s certainty wavers on whether Ben was involved in Kush’s (Davood Ghadami) death and things are made worse when he overhears Ben planning a meeting, not realising Ben and Stuart (Ricky Champ) have invited Callum’s grandma Violet (Gwen Taylor) as a surprise.
When Ben eventually tells Callum about his surprise, he’s thoroughly distracted and demanding to know if Ben hurt Kush.
Ben reiterates that he didn’t hurt Kush, demanding no more lies and Callum – taking his soon-to-be husband’s lead – confesses that he lied about being undercover, the target wasn’t Thompson it was Phil all along.
After Callum’s bombshell, Ben is furious and demands answers, but what will Callum tell him?
Will this huge secret reveal stop Ballum’s wedding going ahead?
